Chesterwood, Home of Sculptor Daniel Chester French

Daniel Chester French was considered the “greatest monument sculptor in post-Civil War America.” His work left an indelible mark on America—most notably the Lincoln Memorial. Many of French’s works were created in the Berkshires at Chesterwood, French’s country retreat in Stockbridge, MA.  

Connecting Point‘s Marla Zippay sat down to learn more about the man, his work and what is now a national historic landmark with Chesterwood Executive Director Donna Hassler and Harold Holzer, author of the forthcoming book Monument Man: The Life & Art of Daniel Chester French.
